Apartments in prestigious areas of Jerusalem cost less than on the Kiev periphery

In the midst of the New Year’s marathon, fate brought me to the same table with a married couple from Jerusalem, who arrived in warm Kiev in Israel to see for themselves the city where the parents of the spouses were born.

Netta and Arnie complained that supposedly in Jerusalem real estate is too expensive, and they cannot afford to move to a new building. First of all, Israel is a relatively small country, and housing supply is limited. Secondly, among wealthy Jews in the USA, France and Great Britain, it has become fashionable to have an apartment in Israel, preferably in Jerusalem, in its prestigious areas.

The floor that we choose. Living above 16 floors is dangerous for health – doctors say so

“Is it easy to live in a high-rise building?” – this topic of our campaign “City of Wonderful Ideas” caused heated debate among the residents of the capital.

HOUSE – FULL OF BOWL, AND EVERYTHING NEARBY – YOURS … Overview of cottage real estate

The one to whom everything that happens on the suburban real estate market is too reminiscent of Chekhov’s “Cherry Orchard,” whose heroes yawn meet a late train, will certainly be disappointed. Today, villages located outside the city do not resettle for the summer, and not the dreamy Ranevskys live in them, but rather the enterprising Lopakhins, who are clearly aware of when, to whom and for what they paid.

And they live in comfort, wondering in the evenings, either to spread out solitaire, or to go smoke a cigar in the company of people from their own circle; an ordinary TV has long turned into a huge panel on the wall and thereby turns the room into a kind of auditorium. In modern cottage towns, there isn’t even bird milk. Continue reading
